July 26, 2018: Industrial Hemp Field Day

July 26, 2018
8:00 AM - 3:00 PM

A follow-up to last year's first-of-its kind public event will provide a forum for potential growers, researchers, marketing experts and industrial hemp product users to discuss the future of the crop in Virginia and neighboring states. Critical information will be shared on the challenges of growing industrial hemp, the available and potential markets for industrial hemp products, and crop processing feasibility to help farmers decide whether to consider growing the crop.

Check back in the spring for more information and to register.
